      The Road pictures continue with this third outing from 1942 called Road to Morocco. As with the first two films, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, and Dorothy Lamour starred. It was that same old formula, too, but that isn’t a bad thing in the case of this movie.

      One of the most delightful parts for me was early on when Hope and Crosby were crossing the desert on a camel. They


      were singing the movie’s theme song, and it’s just so funny because it’s done like a parody, making fun of themselves and the movie at the same time. For example, there’s a line in there about how they bet they met up with Dorothy Lamour soon and another about how the studios would protect them because they were signed for five more years. It’s silly fun.

      Another thing up front ...


      • that made me laugh was when the camel spit at Hope. That wasn’t scripted, but the two actors stayed in character and it’s just a hoot to watch. I know camels like that, so I love that part.

        Towards the end there is a really funny mirage scene where the three stars are singing Moonlight Becomes You, only as they sing, it’s not their voice, but one of the other’s voices,

        so it gets really crazy. Then the two fellas end up kissing when both go to kiss Lamour, who is a mirage, too. It’s just a neat scene.

        Some say this is the best of the Road pictures. I don’t know if I’m on board with that totally, but it is an entertaining picture with some great bits with Hope and Crosby. The ending is wonderfully campy, but so much fun.
